2. radiOM.org - Oakland Museum Concerts Songs Concert [5.116% Popularity: 0.00000]
Oakland Museum Concerts: Songs Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 116 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a recording of a concert of art songs, (and some sound poetry), which was held at the Gallery of California Art of the Oakland Museum on March 19, 1972. Most of these songs were composed by 20th century American composers, some of them well known, such as Ernst Bacon. Lou Harrison, and Henry Cowell, but others perhaps not as well known to mainstream audiences, such as Anne Kish and Barry Taxman, among others. The texts for these songs include poems by such famous authors as Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, and A. E. Housman, but also include settings of ancient Chinese and Japanese poems as well as lesser known contemporary American poetry. The list of performers read like a veritable who’s who of the San Francisco Bay Area New Music scene of the 1970s, and includes vocalists Miriam Abramowitsch, John Duykers, and James Tippey, as well as musicians like Alden Gilchrist, Mike N...
3. radiOM.org - Little Milton: Blues and Soul Man [5.102% Popularity: 0.00000]
Little Milton: Blues and Soul Man Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Dan McClosky interviews Little Milton, the well-known blues guitarist and soul singer. Little Milton got his musical education, as did many rhythm and blues artists of his age, in the black churches of the South. In this wide ranging interview he describes his humble beginnings and his early fascination with the guitar, as well as discussing the various blues musicians that influenced him. The interview is peppered with excerpts of many of the songs and performers mentioned, including those by T-Bone Walker, B. B. King, Fats Domino, and many, many more. Little Milton also talks about the surprising need of black musicians to play country and western music in the white clubs in order to make money on the weekdays. Most of this program deals with Little Milton describing how he got his start, and traces his move from one record label to another. Musical Selections: [medley of...
4. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Pianos Not Rag [5.082% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Pianos Not Rag Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Originally billed as a survey of recorded keyboard literature simultaneous with a production of “The Verbal Séance Players”, this program is a mix of music, (mostly piano, but also some jazz), and bits of orchestral works, seemingly randomly overlaid with multiple tracks of poetry, recited by a variety of voices. One of the pieces of poetry is tentatively identified at the start of the program as being “Words” a 1969 text-sound composition by Charles Amirkhanian. However sometimes the whole is greater than the parts, and perhaps it is more important to just let the tape roll and enjoy the sonic experience rather than conduct an analysis of its constituent parts. Musical Selections: [a mix of mostly unidentified music and poetry] Performers: The Verbal Séance Players: Emily Levin, as Melvin Jahn Larry Bensky, as Gertrude Stein Jean Blair, as Satan Gerard Van der Leun, as The Ci...

6. radiOM.org - Evenings on the Roof Harry Partch Series No. 1 [0.587% Popularity: 0.00000]
Evenings on the Roof: Harry Partch Series No. 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA This is the first in a series of programs produced by Peter Yates in the mid-1960s, highlighting the works of Harry Partch. This program begins with an excerpt from one of Partch's pieces followed by a fascinating 1960 interview of Partch by Peter Yates in which the composer discusses his career, instruments, and interest in microtonal music. Part eccentric and part genius, Harry Partch was famous for his 43-note microtonal scale, typically played on instruments of his own design. Partch often incorporated dance or theatrics in his compositions, excerpts of a couple of which are heard here, including his “US Highball: a Musical Account of a Transcontinental Hobo Trip” partially based on his own travel experiences. Although Partch died in 1974, a cohort of past students and enthusiasts have kept his legacy alive, and he is now recognized as one of the the fines...
7. radiOM.org - Fruit Punch Young Caesar: A Puppet Opera by Lou Harrison [0.540% Popularity: 0.00000]
Fruit Punch: Young Caesar: A Puppet Opera by Lou Harrison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 159 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On December 25, 1974, as a Christmas special, the Fruit Punch Collective presented a recording of the 1971 world premiere performance of Lou Harrison’s gay-oriented opera, “Young Caesar”. The story of the opera explores the meeting, and purported subsequent love affair, between the young Julius Caesar and King Nicomedes IV of Bithynia. In addition to desiring to write an opera with a homosexual theme, Harrison was also attracted to the story about Caesar and Nicomedes because it represented the meeting between East and West. Building upon that theme the musical score calls for a variety of Eastern instruments including gamelan, and rather than using real actors, puppets and shadow figures were utilized instead, much as they are in Indonesia. The homoerotic nature of the story was made quite evident in such scenes as the ball...
8. radiOM.org - Evenings on the Roof Harry Partch Series No. 6 [0.486% Popularity: 0.00000]
Evenings on the Roof: Harry Partch Series No. 6 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 64 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFK From a program recorded in 1965, Peter Yates introduces Harry Partch's “Oedipus”. This is a classic example of Partch's speech-music form of musical drama and dance. Part eccentric and part genius, Harry Partch was famous for his 43-note microtonal scale, typically played on instruments of his own design. Partch often incorporated dance or theatrics in his compositions, with this work “King Oedipus” being based on both the original play by Sophocles as well as additonal texts by William Butler Yeats. Although Partch died in 1974, a cohort of past students and enthusiasts have kept his legacy alive and his works might indeed be better known today than they were when this program first aired, a trend that radiOM.org hopes to further. Musical Selections: King Oedipus [excerpt, texts based on William Butler Yeats and Sophocles] (1952-54) / Harry Partch Performers: Allan Louw, O...
9. radiOM.org - Treasury of the 78's English Choral Music [0.297% Popularity: 0.00000]
Treasury of the 78's: English Choral Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program first broadcast on July 27, 1962, John Whiting presents some early 78 rpm recordings of English choir music from the 16th and 17th centuries. Works by Henry Purcell, William Croft, Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, Thomas Morley, Thomas Weelkes, Orlando Gibbons, & John Blow are performed by the choirs of New College in Oxford, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, and King’s College. Most of these works feature arrangements by Edmund Horace Fellowes. Although these are early recordings and are at times a little scratchy, the music is of high enough quality to make all such distractions inconsequential to anyone interested in the best of early English Church Music. The added commentary by Whiting provides historical context on each composer, making the entire listening experience as informative as it is enjoyable. Musical Selections: Remember Not, Lord, Our Offen...
